1. Spicy Sichuan Green Beans with Ground Pork
In restaurants, Sichuan green beans are typically deep-fried in oil. Linda’s simplified home recipe skips deep-frying for a healthier version of this classic dish. The beans are stir-fried until browned and blistered, then cooked with lively seasonings. With the large quantity of red chiles, the dish looks scorching hot. In fact, if you shake most of the seeds out of chiles, the effect of the chiles is relatively mild. The preserved vegetable or fermented black beans add an authentic, slightly fermented flavor, but is not essential. Omit the pork for a vegetarian version.
2. Steeped Chinese Ginger Chicken in Little Lettuce Cups
This chicken recipe combines two easy recipes adapted from Linda’s book, The Hakka Cookbook, to make a fresh tasting first course or cool summer supper. The chicken is cooked using a no-fuss technique called steeping, which keeps it moist. The accompanying ginger sauce adds a delicate, refined flavor - the perfect compliment to the similarly sophisticated presentation in baby lettuce leaves.

6. Hakka-Style Chinese Chow Mein with Shrimp
This recipe was created by Hakka (Han Chinese) chefs in India for their Indian customers. It is very much like a basic Chinese chow mein or lo mein, except for the generous addition of fresh chiles and pepper. If you like it even hotter, serve with a small bowl of soy sauce, seasoned with minced fresh chiles. If you like it mild, leave out the chiles and reduce the black pepper. In this Grokker Premium video Linda demonstrates this recipe that she learned from Peter Tseng at Tangra Asian Fusion Cuisine in Queens, NY, where they call it Garlic Noodles.
